Open Minds Award 2018

It’s time for Neos CMS to hit new stages


We are happy to announce that Neos CMS will be part of the Open Minds Award in Austria this fall. Among other great open source content management systems like Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla, we participate in the category “Open Content Management”.

The basic aim of this award category is to make the effort which people invest in their communities in order to push the project forward visible. But it’s also about people who share the same enthusiasm we have and who see the potential the project and the community have and push it to new boundaries.

We are also very happy to announce that the event will take place during the Neos CMS team sprint week in Salzburg and many community folks will join the award ceremony. If you don’t want to miss the opportunity to meet team members just get your ticket with the discount code "IPPY_NEO" and we’ll see you there.

By the way: If you have friends or colleagues who would also like to come, just grab a ticket for them as well.
